We stand behind multiple companies’ success in materials technologies.
MaTec Materials Technologies is an Italian company founded in 1999, designing equipment to test the mechanical properties of solid materials.
OUR PURPOSE IS TO ENABLE OUR CLIENTS TO ADVANCE TO THE NEXT FRONTIER OF KNOWLEDGE, ALLOWING THEM TO DISCOVER WHAT THEY CAN ACHIEVE.
The idea behind MaTec evolved from a simple acknowledgment: the comparison of experimental data coming from measurements performed in different laboratories is often problematic, as small changes in the procedures may result in large deviations from the correct result. To obviate such situations, standard methods of measurement are currently developed by several national and international organizations.
ASTM International in the USA is one of the leader standard-setting institutions, their methods are widely followed worldwide. MaTec has adopted the ASTM-standards for catalysts regarding the equipment for abrasion, attrition and crush strength measurements.
In these years, MaTec has gained the trust of many major players in the petrochemical and catalyst industries: major companies and research centers worldwide rely on our instruments in order to achieve a high-quality and reliable ASTM-standard measures. Today, MaTec is able to adapt its product range to other industries, such as pharmaceutical and ceramic, and relies on a comprehensive network of distributors across the globe.
- Provide our clients with the best standard measure appliances to achieve constant and reliable testing of solid materials.
- Supply state-of-the-art assistance to catalyst users to respond to any kind of problem that may arise in their plants.
